Umahi's Defection: PDP Should Negotiate with South-East - Walid Jubril by kahal29: 6:32am On Nov 18
As the Board of Trustees (BoT) and National Caucus of the PDP meet today to discuss issues affecting the party, Jubrin yesterday called for dialogue with the South-east over the agitations that the presidential ticket of the party should be allotted to the zone.

The BoT and the National Caucus of the party are billed to meet in Abuja today.

Jubrin told THISDAY that as the main advisory organ of the party, the PDP must be ready to dialogue with the South-east over the zoning of the party’s presidential ticket.

He said: “We are the main advisory organ of the party, constitutionally recognised, we must be ready to dialogue with the Igbo. We lose nothing in dialogue. We must dialogue with them.

“They are not outsiders. The Igbo are part and parcel of the PDP. They are part of our backbone. They cannot be wished away.

“The Igbo contributed a lot in the making of the PDP. We must listen to them in the same way a father listens to his son. This is politics. We need the South-east.

“Today, the entire South-south zone belongs to the PDP. We are happy about it. In the same way, we must ensure that we do all that is necessary to listen to the Igbo and discuss with them as a family.

“It is not politically right to keep quiet, while other political parties are making overtures to them. They are humans and have interest to protect.”

He explained that other political parties cannot be strategising on the 2023 elections and the PDP will be left out.

It was also gathered that the Ohanaeze Igbo has made Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu chairman of a body to select a replacement for Chief John Nwodo, the outgoing president of the Igbo socio-cultural body, with the sole aim to electing a new president who will ensure that the presidential ticket of the two main political parties are zoned to the South-east.

THISDAY gathered that the Ohanaeze position on 2023 presidential election is that the South-east should support any political party that gives its presidential ticket to the zone.

South East should put their house in order first to make negotiations easy.

We may be surprised that they may not be able support or present one candidate as it stands now. Even if an opportunity is given to them.

When I created that thread about how shabbily PDP has been treating the East from 1999, and how deserving they are of the party's 2023 ticket, people like Racoon and Pachukwudi44 called me names, claiming the East doesn't deserve it (and these ones claim to be Igbo men. Wonder why they are averse to an idea such as that).

With the benefit of hindsight, I foresaw a time would come when the scales will fall from these peoples eyes and they'd see with all clarity how this party, for which they've been busting their hump since its founding, sees them as nothing but a transport vehicle. The time has indeed come finally.

It was super irritating seeing those same people who think the East deserves APC's ticket in preference to the West not make a single call for the party they prefer to zone their own ticket to the East, and go as far as threatening if that does not happen, they'd cast their ballots in favour of another Northerner come next election. They probably didn't see the clouds gathering over their heads. Now it is drizzling, and with all that cloud above, a thunderstorm would ensue in no distant time, so violent would the storm be even the toughest UMBRELLA can't provide the smallest of cover.

The days ahead will be very interesting for political watchers indeed.

the SE merits the ticket. They were at the forefront of PDP formation in 1998 with Ekwueme and Nwobodo. They once had 5 SE governors at a time. SE has won all presidential elections. 21years of utter loyalty and steadfastness to a party.

If loyalists are not rewarded in party games, then the aim of partisanship has been defeated. PDP does not mean well for the Igbo.

PDP is not a good opposition.

Technically, there are 3 APC governors and 2 PDP in the South East.
and those that will contest under PDP in 2023 are still in APC.

Their strategies no pass rhetorics, manipulation and vote buying.
And oh, they destroy properties of their opponents just to settle political scores. Tinubu, Lagos and the Nigerian Port Authority will come back stronger.

They are politically dumb.

He's fighting for his personal interest. He's a politician that's what all politicians do. They don't take decisions that wouldn't benefit them personally in anyway
